The Boston Red Sox, Kansas City Royals and New York Mets have agreed to a three-way trade that will send outfielder Andrew Benintendi from Fenway to K.C., sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night.

De’Andre Hunter’s knee surgery gives Hawks yet another medical hurdle

De’Andre Hunter’s knee surgery is only the latest medical setback that threatens the Atlanta Hawks’ efforts to end a streak of three consecutive losing seasons. The Hawks have been without guard Bogdan Bogdanovic for a month due to a knee injury. Hunter, enjoying a breakout season as the starting small forward, missed four games before Monday’s arthroscopic procedure on his right knee. His status will be updated in two weeks. Atlanta (11-12) will be without the two starters when it plays at Dallas on Wednesday night. Hunter has emerged as one of Atlanta’s top players in his second season. He is third on the team […]

Maker to switch Fire At Will to dirt in Fountain of Youth

After lengthy reflection as to whether to give Fire At Will an opportunity on the Kentucky Derby trail, trainer Mike Maker has decided to switch the winner of the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf off the grass and run him in the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park. Maker said Fire At Will “went super” when breezing five furlongs early Saturday in 1:01.60 over a fast Gulfstream main track. “It looked like he handled it well,” said Maker. Fire At Will, by Declaration of War, is owned by the Three Diamonds Farm of Kirk Wycoff. The dark bay colt has […]

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna returns to Atlanta Braves on four-year deal

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back Marcell Ozuna, signing the slugger to a four-year, $64 million deal. The Braves revealed the deal for the 2020 National League home run and RBI leader on Friday night, less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training. The contract contains a fifth-year club option for $16 million that would take it to $80 million with a $1 million buyout, which would yield Ozuna $65 million in guaranteed money. The Braves made the major commitment to Ozuna despite having no assurance there will be a designated hitter in the NL in […]

Kevin Durant leads LeBron James at top of NBA All-Star voting

Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant and Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James led the first round of fan voting for this year’s NBA All-Star Game. Durant, who missed all of last season — his first as a member of the Nets — with a torn Achilles tendon, led all players with 2,302,705 votes, slightly ahead of James’ 2,288,676, the top total in the Western Conference. Stephen Curry (2.11 million) was the only player besides Durant and James to surpass 2 million votes, and as a result was the runaway leader for the top spot among West guards. Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic (1.39 million) was second, followed by Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (998,853) in […]

Cleveland Indians bring back reliever Bryan Shaw on minor league deal

With some spots to fill in their bullpen, the Cleveland Indians signed durable reliever Bryan Shaw to a minor league contract and invited him to big league spring training. Shaw, 33, spent five campaigns with the club, appearing in 378 games during a tenure when he was invaluable for manager Terry Francona. The right-hander had a 3.11 ERA and led the American League in appearances three times with the Indians. Shaw never pitched in fewer than 70 matches during his first stint with the Indians, and he often took the ball on back-to-back days for Francona. Shaw left as a free agent […]

Medina Spirits wins Robert Lewis

In a performance even possibly more surreal than Authentic ‘s Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1) triumph, Medina Spirit upstaged Bob Baffert’s newly-minted Horse of the Year Jan. 30, staring defeat in the eye down the homestretch and refusing to blink, holding off two pursuers through the last quarter-mile to gain the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3) in a stretch run for the ages at Santa Anita Park. Even Baffert thought he wasn’t going to win after Roman Centurian and Hot Rod Charlie hooked pacesetting Medina Spirit at the head of the stretch. As it was, Medina Spirit—who led virtually from the beginning after breaking from the rail—prevailed […]

Didi Gregorius, Philadelphia Phillies agree to 2-year, $28 million deal

Didi Gregorius is returning to the Philadelphia Phillies after the free-agent shortstop agreed to a two-year, $28 million deal with the team, a source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday. In another move, the Phillies are trading shortstop Kyle Holder to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for cash considerations, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Gregorius, who turns 31 on Feb. 18, proved to be a massive bargain in 2020 for the Phillies, who signed the free agent to a one-year, $14 million deal last offseason. He rebounded from an injury-plagued 2019 season with the New York Yankees by hitting .284 with 10 home runs, 40 RBIs and 34 runs scored […]
